British-American actor and singer. By age 30 he was a theatrical sensation, writing, directing and starring in the landmark 1962 Broadway hit, "Stop the World - I Want to Get Off." Though he never clicked as a Hollywood actor, he was a creative original.
Newley's second wife was actress Joan Collins; two daughters. Their eight-year marriage ended in 1971. He had a third wife, Dareth Dunn; two kids. Born illegitimately in a working-class London neighborhood, he made a debut at 16 in the 1948 film classic "Oliver Twist." He relocated to Los Angeles in 1967 and became a fixture performing on the Las Vegas nightclub circuit.
On 4/14/1999, he died at his home in Islandia, FL of cancer that had spread through his system. He was holding the hand of Gina Fratini, 67, his companion since 1993.
